Ben Wong's Model S (BenWongWestCovina @ gmail.com)
Ben suggested that the onboard Tesla Navigation system should add a feature to show alternative charging stations if Superchargers
are not convenient, such as a trip to Prescott, Arizona, from Southern California.
Robert Rollins, coredumperror @ gmail.com, from Azusa
with his new Model 3 with 18" Aero Wheels*.
*Incidentally, the Aero wheels (on Robert's car above) are actually removable wheel covers. Behind the covers are these spokes
(above) and the Tesla Shop offers a $50 package for all wheels including a center cover and lug nut covers. Or, you can upgrade
to 19" Sport Wheels with chrome spokes for $1,500.
There were two Tesla Roadsters in attendance. Dennis Pascual (dennis.pascual @ gmail.com/ and meetup.com/Orange-County-Tesla-Club)
demonstrates his wife's car (below).
Tesla Model S
Several vendors were in attendance, but the City of Diamond Bar environmental Services had the best stuff.
I'm enjoying my lighted yoyo!
Other booths handed out various pamphlets, but South Coast AQMD handed out this "2018 Clean Air Choice Vehicles", which I found
very interesting. The footnotes a the bottom explain the various colors on HOV lane stickers. I think Tesla Model 3 Long Range
owners will find the MPG City/Hwy column most interesting.
Another excellent source of information on various electric vehicles is
